Re: 2012 General deer

I was hoping he would score a little high because I dont have any mule deer shoulder mounts. But It would at least need to score higher than my best whitetail to be mount worthy which he misses the mark. I think if I ever get a 170+ or a nice non typical ill do a shoulder mount. So I am going to just have the skull bleached.. Thanks for the kind words guys.

Re: 2012 General deer

Why did you use such a small cartridge?

Re: 2012 General deer

Good question! I hadnt killed anything with this rifle in a while and it was my first rifle i bought when i was 12 working for an old guy at a meat processing/taxidermy shop for $10 bucks a day. So i thought the old girl deserved a fresh kill.

Re: 2012 General deer

Kind of a cool update. I saved my cape because the taxidermist was going to give me a credit for it. but then my dad mentioned wanting to have the shoulder mount of his first buck redone. (its not the deer original cape anyway and its not looking so great these days..). so I gave him the cape. So my Dads first deer will wear a cape I killed. Kind of a cool deal I think
